Guillebaud, a French journalist, considers whether it's time to dump Western capitalism's values; instead, he advocates re-founding the market-based society by getting rid of its distortions and returning to fundamental values of the Greek-Judeo-Christian tradition. "In many respects," he writes, "the situation of Judeo-Christianity is strangely reminiscent of what it was at the time of the Enlightenment, while gradually the outlines of a different and unprecedented `modernity' are emerging, involving not only the `West' but also the entire planet. We are still hesitating between the risk of regression into barbarism and the possibility of a new Age of Enlightenment." Guillebaud's complex work would have benefited from a subject index.
